Care homes

  • Introduction to care homes

    Moving in to a care home may seem like a big step, but it could offer the opportunity to form new friendships and provide a safe, comfortable place to live.
  • Paying for temporary care

    Local authority charging rules differ when a stay in a care home is temporary, rather than permanent.
  • Finding a care home

    Care homes all have to meet certain minimum standards, but they can still vary widely in the sort of accommodation and facilities that they offer.
  • Choosing accommodation

    You are free to find a place in a care home yourself, if you can make your own arrangements and pay the fees.
